Gail is a university student and houses don't grow on trees; she's thrilled to find the last available housing to be affordable and sanitary and moves into the enormous house of Dr. Fenner (a professor in veterinary medicine). As the days go by though, strange occurrences begin to happen, getting more and more sinister each time. Could it be Dr. Fenner's wife, his supposed daughter? Or maybe whatever it is, it doesn't appreciate having Gail as company in the house.
